A new edition of Masters’ Interdisciplinary Workshops arrives, a series of intensive extracurricular activities for master and postgraduate students for them to complement their academic education. The workshops, which will take place from the 19th to the 23rd of February, are the following:
New edition of the Masters’ Interdisciplinary Workshops with KiteLab, Raw Color and Honey & Bunny
Directed by: Victor Guerithault
Continuing the game of construction, the aim of the workshop is to imagine a simple system to build cellular kites that can be folded and are relatively large. They will also have to be aesthetic and poetic while being well thought out in the construction system.
Participants will explore geometric shapes with specific kite materials and their structures. It is also important to think about kites telling a story.
Victor Guerithault is a French designer graduated in EESAB Rennes specialized in kites and aerial structures. Passionate about lightweight structures, architectures and kites he found a way to dust off the aerodynes systems in a fun way with KiteLab, collaborating with brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Le Coq Sportif and Burberry.

The aim of the workshop is to create a graphic object that interacts with the wind and can generate energy. During the workshop, participants will develop their own ‘Wind Thing’; objects that unify the artistic appearance of a kinetic object and the function of a small-scale turbine.
Participants will test different colours, patterns, shapes and rotations to influence each other and will chose the design that works best for them to work in the final prototype afterwards.
Daniela ter Haar and Christoph Brach work together at Raw Color, a studio based in Eindhoven where they reflect a sophisticated treatment of material and colour through the combination of graphic design, photography and product design. The materialisation of the colour plays a fundamental role in their work, and can be considered the core of their studio.

In this workshop we will discuss future design goals and methods with the help of edible objects and eating activities. Honey & Bunny will present an overview of Food Design, Eat Design and Resilient Design.
Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter founded the interdisciplinary studio Honey & Bunny. They participated in many international exhibitions as designers and Eat Art artists. They also worked in installations for the Palazzo Triennale in Milan, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London or the Museum of Image in Breda. Moreover, they have developed and presented performances at Paris Design Week 2015, Expo Milan 2015 and Republic in Salzburg, among others.
